“We’re inviting transfer students and high school sophomores, juniors and seniors, many of whom are already MTSU admits,” said Tony Strode, director of MTSU undergraduate admissions. “Our goal is to showcase our beautiful campus and world-renowned academic programs, giving them a taste of the True-Blue experience.
